WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF THE PROGRAM?
Ambassadors are hand selected for a reason; because they are special! And because they are special, we would love to have more wonderful people like them!! Therefore, we request that every Studio Ambassador recommend at least 1 potential replacement as the following year’s Ambassador, prior to the end of the school year. We suggest that they inquire amongst friends from the class below them (those who will be seniors in the following year) to find someone whom they feel is the right caliber of person to represent our studio brand.
WHEN IS THE LAST DAY FOR TRACKING REFERRALS?
The deadline for logging booked referrals by Ambassador will be July 1, 2014. At that time, we will tally up all the referrals, calculate the prize package that each Ambassador has won, and issue the prizes by the end of July.
